The company has also revealed the list of bloggers it has signed up. Although promising that positive comment is not required, the Marqui 17 will be watched extremely closely over the coming weeks and months:

    We’ll see what happens… my first post about using the Marqui system is about how dirty I feel using any system that breaks when not viewed in Internet Explorer. I believe I call the developers lazy too… or did in an earlier version of the post.
